To do personal learning Real – Thony Norelli

In April, the cruelest month the poets say, I nominate September as the most jumping.

In September, the official school starts: open doors, fresh supplies, new ideas. The jump is deeply intertwined with education. Measure anchor learning, giving direction for teachers and students. Inspirational teachers explain the paths or routes that can enable students to achieve these goals. We strive to create environments as fuels – for students and teachers alike. And the most caring educators show students how to use the obstacles they encounter to redirect their work – not just giving up.

These days, many educators burn their hopes with visions of personal learning – finding ways to help students formulate their goals, find ways, take action and maintain it, regardless of obstacles.

Despite that, there is a lot of debate about “personal learning” that begins with the core issue: Is that a thing? Can “personal learning” be the same in different schools? How does the teacher’s roles change? What are the risks? Does it threaten to share our students, stop “tracing” them and so prevention determines their destiny?

And the biggest question about everyone makes these ideas some new insights for how we prepare our children for the future?

These are some of the topics we hope to explore at the Edsurge Fusion Conference on Personalized Learning, hosted by Digital Promise, in November in South San Francisco.

Unique for Merger: We collect more than a dozen training organizations and their resources, hundreds of educators, researchers and industry leaders to learn from each other. Equity will be a critical peak – as well as how advanced technology will change our students’ future world. These points will be fundamental to the four strings of the event:
How to build Vision

The worst reason for change that the school leaders agree is that a pallet pallet with computers has just landed at the school’s top step and nobody knows what to do with them.

Careful school leaders are often motivated by the experiences they see that the students have at school. Such reasons contribute to “vision”, a model for teaching and learning that is personal and supports the students’ variety and agency. Before school leaders start a campaign to change their schools, they need a well-founded reason to take their journey and an idea of ​​where they would like to quit.

A number of organizations aim to help school leaders define where they want to lead their school communities. For example, for example, it offers a set of resources for school leaders who only enter the path of personal learning. Leap Innovations in Chicago has a four-point framework that is entirely focused on students. NewSchools Venture Fund provides support and funding for school leaders who do school recovery.

What does the research say?

Inform and feed that vision should be profound knowledge – ideal research results on how students learn, what forms their readiness to learn and how these principles can be applied in supportive learning tools. Digital Promise has devoted considerable resources to show the links between what we know and how it is implemented in school. The organization’s research map, for example, links subjects such as student motivation to published research frameworks and results.
Implement, implement, implement

However, winning the best plans is still challenging. From the student’s integrity and data management issues, the challenges of making software tools have worked well or inter operating a number of organizations-developed approaches and protocols to handle these issues, including the Ed-Fi Alliance, which aim to bring together data and IT systems in meaningful ways.
Show me the proof

To specify which programs are most effective – and why – is another cornerstone of real change. In the spring, Jefferson Education Accelerator gathered researchers to discuss the most promising directions to explain the impact of education technology and the corresponding teaching models.

You read Entrepreneur Middle East, an international franchise of Entrepreneur Media.

Sales play an important role in the growth of all business. The sales process consists of different methods, and one of them gets to know your customers and establish strong relationships with them. Social media, as we all know, connect people and can help companies get more information about their customers. It enables business owners to find out how their business is perceived by their customers, including what their customers like their competitors so that they can make the necessary changes to their products or services, and to initiate calls to grow a prospect or sales management. Here are some ideas on how social media can be used to create new sales and generate increased returns.

1. Choose the right social media platform Social media consists of different platforms, and when choosing the right social media platform for their business, entrepreneurs should begin to learn their customer base preferences. Social media can only be used intelligently only if the activity is active on the same online platform as its customers. It’s a waste of time to engage on a social media platform if your customers spend the majority of their time on another. One of the best social media is Facebook, especially for B2C companies, as it allows publishing ads. It can also be used with other platforms, such as Pinterest and Instagram. You can engage with new customers, take orders from them and keep them informed about your new offers and initiatives.

2. Connect to your prospects Once you have chosen the right platform, you must connect by creating a profile or page to be made in the company name. Then you can connect your prospects by following them, send them a friend request and so on. The question that arises here is how do you identify the prospects? This is where SEO techniques can be useful. You can use keywords to search for people who are active in or talking about your industry. It is advisable not to approach them with sales outlets immediately, but first to find out their needs and concerns.

3. Build relationships and participate in conversations Suitable for both customers and businesses, social media enables them to build long-term relationships. Entrepreneurs should know that it takes time before they get the desired results. Building long-term relationships is only possible when you invest time to investigate, create and share engaging content. It’s not a good idea to just send your customers a message with a note and a link to your site. They will be uninterested – but try to point out some issues of theirs that your product or service can solve.

These are three simple steps that can help your social media recognize, while increasing the sales of your businesses. It is also important to mention that you should strive to treat your potential customers with respect while adding value to their lives with your products or services.

 

 

Best strategies to invest actively in shares

There are a number of well documented ways to beat the stock market over time. You can divide these into different categories, but usually it’s about paying less for shares than they are worth. The most well-known and well-documented ways to beat the stock exchange are as follows:

– Net nets (Graham and Buffett)

– Special situations and knockouts (Joel Greenblatt)

– Activist (Carl Icahn)

– Buy and keep good company (Buffett)

 

MostActive

 

All of these categories have been used to beat the stock market and the people in brackets are the best known to have been successful. There is also a lot of empirical evidence that these strategies have worked and many have been rewritten on this blog.

The first two categories are more that using arbitrage available on the market, by purchasing companies that are extremely low priced or not guarded by the market. This has proved to be the most profitable kind of shares to invest in and Buffett has said that if he had only one million dollars, he would be able to earn 50% return per year by investing in this way. Greenblatt succeeded in doing this for 10 years when investing in special situations, and that has still worked well, although there are now several players in this industry.

Being an activist like Icahn, on the other hand, is difficult because you have to take great positions and get in touch with companies. On the other hand, you get roughly similar stocks with the quantitative strategies I’ve written about here, and not uncommonly, Icahn appears in the owner lists. Being an activist is difficult, but you can follow John in this case.

Buying and maintaining good companies is something Buffett is an expert in and is clearly the most popular investment form. Here you can divide it into a few different types of companies, both those who are more conservatively valued and where you can use an approach similar to Graham’s defensive criteria, but also if you are more aggressive and buy growth companies at a good price. Buffett is best known for the latter, buying companies that grow a lot for a long time at a good price. This strategy differs more from the others, as the other is about exploiting arbitrage in the market while it is about identifying companies that are in themselves good.

There are a wealth of blogs that follow all of these strategies mentioned above. I identify my investment philosophy more to the first categories, as I have both the net in my portfolio and buy quantitatively inexpensive shares. More who are more active in this are the blogs Value Agency and Cigarffimpar, but sometimes the Securities and blogs linked to the newspaper. For the latter category, good companies that you buy and maintain for a long time there are a lot of blogs about. One that I have seen recently has been really good is Nemcap, can recommend reading his blog and the latest post.

 

When it comes to being active in the stock market it takes enormous effort to be read and understand their shares. For example, I understand not the special with the companies that Nemcap has in its portfolio. His recommendation is to spend +15 hours a week for several years to succeed well. To compare, a former colleague dropped so much time on his run and he came as the best European in the New York Marathon. It is, therefore, an extreme discipline and conviction to succeed well, and only a few succeed so much after spending so much time. Many of the aforementioned work full time with investments and they are known for working long weeks. Geoff Gannon, who also succeeds in investing actively, believes that the absolute minimum is to spend an hour a day, and in any case, 5 shares that you have for 5 years. It means more than two hundred hours per share. So it takes a lot of time to succeed in the stock market and the odds are against one. For this reason, I am looking forward to investing quantitatively, as it takes a minimum of time and many times performs as well as if you were active.

Swedegas has taken the initiative to develop Power to Gas in Sweden together with representatives of the Swedish energy industry-Thony Norell

Power to Gas is a form of technology where surplus energy from wind … which has attracted great attention and is also perfectly feasible in Sweden. Thony Norelli

Here is no shortage of renewable energy. In principle, availability is endless. The challenge is to make renewable energy available where needed, when needed and at a competitive price. Storage of energy and a highly efficient infrastructure are necessary to meet strict energy and climate goals. Power to gas – integration of wind power and gas grid – is an international technology that has attracted great attention and is also perfectly feasible in Sweden. Swedegas has managed to bring the energy sector together to jointly determine how Power to Gas can develop in Sweden.

In Denmark and Germany, Power to Gas is seen as a solution to reaching renewable energy targets by 2035 and 2050. In Germany there are a large number of demonstration projects to develop technology and improve efficiency. The car company Audi opened a Wertle plant in 2013, producing renewable fuels for gas vehicles through Power to Gas.

More renewable power

“Power to Gas would at each of the locations contribute to societal benefit, more renewable power production and collaboration between different energy players. Now that we have established this we can also take the next step and work to bring about the construction of a pilot plant at one of the sites,” said Johan Zettergren, Vice President Marketing and Business Development at Swedegas.

What the selected sites have in common is large-scale expansion plans for wind power and the aim of increasing the use of biofuels. Otherwise the conditions differ. The study shows that Gotland already has a surplus of electricity from wind power during certain periods. The region also has plans to increase the use of biogas and local industry that generates high levels of carbon dioxide emissions. Falkenberg has good access to a gas infrastructure, plans are in place for the expansion of wind power and a hydrogen gas filling station is being constructed. Piteå also has wide-reaching wind power plans and good access to forest materials for renewable energy production. Although it already has a surplus of electricity it also has a high level of energy use and high concentrations of carbon dioxide emissions

.

The survey has been conducted by ÅF at the request of the Swedish company for infrastructure management Swedegas and a number of energy bodies. The study has been supported by the Swedish Energy Agency through the Energy Research Institute.
